Today’s photos are of a location on College Avenue that is now located by Tiger Town Tavern. The single story portion of this building was originally a hardware store named The Feed Bag until about 1968. It briefly changed over to a restaurant, keeping the name of The Feed Bag. The first “bar” in downtown, The Study Hall, opened in 1967 and when the two operators split up, one kept the Study Hall and the other renovated the Feed Bag into the Red Carpet Lounge in the fall of 1968. Drafts were 25 cents during Happy Hour, 2–7 p.m. By 1974 it primarily vended beer and music was provided by a jukebox. Wooden nickels were distributed with the purchase of a pitcher and a given number of them could be redeemed for a pony keg. Today, this location is Tiger Town Tavern.
